A white collar crime is typically defined as a non-violent crime that involves deception, concealment, theft or fraud. There are many different types of crimes that fall into the “white collar” category, including but not limited to:
- Identity theft
- Insider trading
- Securities fraud
- Tax evasion
- Money laundering
- Health insurance fraud
- Check or credit card fraud
- Antitrust violation
- Internet and computer crimes
Many times, white collar crimes are committed by business professionals, public officials, or other professional people with the means and access to commit such crimes. Depending on the type of white collar crime committed, it can be investigated and prosecuted by the state or the federal government.
How To Protect Your Rights And Securities If Charged With White Collar Crime
Although white collar crime is non-violent, the state and federal government takes it just as seriously and the punishments if you are convicted can be equally as harsh as violent crimes such as domestic violence, manslaughter and even some murder charges. If you are being charged with white collar crime, it is important that you take the charges seriously and retain legal counsel as soon as possible.
